3)  Rs.10,620  4)  Rs.11,540 
5)  None of these 
Answer : Rs.9,680
Explanation : Given, P = 8,000 , T=3 yrs A= 9200
Explanation : Given, P = 8,000 , T=3 yrs A= 9200
So, S.I = 9200  8000 = 1200
Then , R = (1200 X 100 ) / 8000 X 3 = 5%
After 2% rate increases , new rate will be 7%.
So, new SI=( 8000 X 3 X 7) / 100 = 1680
Thus, new amount = 8000 + 1680 = 9,680
